The Tarot Cafe: The Wild Hunt

by on Jan.18, 2009, under Uncategorized

The Tarot Cafe

Yep, that’s me, with a book; The Tarot Cafe Novel vol. 1: The Wild Hunt. This is a novel based on the Tarot Cafe manhwa series (manhwa = Korean comic books). An author named Chandra Rooney (a.k.a. sora_blue) was commissioned to write The Wild Hunt.

If the name “Chandra Rooney” sounds familiar…she was also known as “Lady Chaos”, active years ago around ImproFanfic and creator of Dark Star!

And now she’s got a published novel. ๐Ÿ˜€

    *stares at the picture. Stares some more. Purrs, pounces John and drags him away for awhile*

  2. damienroc

    Hey, that’s pretty cool. I’ll have to check it out… once I manage to cull down my reading stack.

  3. vincentursus

    I feel out of touch.

    Don’t forget, she was also the creator of Playing the Fate Game.

  4. johnevans

    Oh yes, I do remember that one. >_>

  5. sora_blue

    John is being kind and only mentioning the one that didn’t suck.

    Howdy. Long time. How you been?

    You know, I liked Fate Game–If not for the execution, which was merely okay, then for the hybrid RPG/writing thing it was trying to be. But then, games are my life…;)

  7. sora_blue

    Yeah, the execution was sloppy. It wanted to be something good, but the means to do it just wasn’t implemented at the time.

  8. vincentursus

    I too liked Fate Game.

    I have notes for the next chapter I started writing when it seemed no one else was writing one.

  9. sora_blue

    I had a rough draft for the first half of the ending of Final Fantasy: Fated on my computer.

    It was offered to improfanfic, but they said they didn’t want it if it didn’t completely end the story.

  10. vincentursus

    I’d ask to see it, but I notice you use the past tense.

  11. sora_blue

    Yes, as in I’m not certain I still have it. I could look.

  12. sora_blue

    Found it.

    Chapter 23–rough drafted. Chapter 24 not written, but the file has scenes outlined.


  13. vincentursus

    If you could e-mail that to me I’d appreciate it.

  14. vincentursus

    Do you think restarting it with revamped mechanics would garner interest?

    Or perhaps a new project designed from the ground up to be a hybrid RPG/writing project?

  15. vincentursus

    Um, let’s see.

    Went to Syracuse NY to get a Master’s Degree. Moved to the Boston area to look for work. Found work back home in Halifax, moved back there and back in with my parents.

    Got a girlfriend. Broke up with said girlfriend. That last item is recent and still painful.

    Haven’t been writing much lately, though being once again single I’m trying to get back into it.

    Still employed, still living with my parents.


    I’ve now added you to my Friends List.

  16. sora_blue

    Let’s see… had we talked since I went and returned from teaching English in Japan?

    Got my graphic design diploma. Went to Los Angeles. Got the TOKYOPOP deal. Signed with a lit agent. Completed the TOKYOPOP book. Went out on submission with an adult manuscript. Left Los Angeles and went back to Kamloops. Got a job with Starbucks. Soon to go out on submission with a young adult series.

  17. vincentursus

    I don’t think so.

    That sounds largely successful.

  18. vidstudent

    Hey! Have associate degree which stinks, so I’m back to college for a bachelor’s. Apparently, you’re doing at least fine. ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. sora_blue

    I’m pretty good. Look at you guys coming out of the binary code, which I would imagine is the online woodwork.

  20. sora_blue

    Dude that fanfic is going to haunt me for the rest of my life… I still can’t believe we NEVER finished it. Good times.

    Amazon or did you actually find one of the rare wild copies?

  21. johnevans

    Haha, poor Sakura-chan, we make her stunned.

    I just got it from Amazon, as soon as I heard it was available. ๐Ÿ˜€

  22. sora_blue

    It is the best icon.

    BTR lives? I just looked at the dates on the story queue and felt so very old.

  23. johnevans

    It lives!

    “Lives”? Well…You know what they say: That is not dead which can eternal…stay up on the web.

  24. sora_blue

    Re: It lives!

    Internet. Elder Gods.

    Yeah, I see the connection.

  25. maramala

    I still can’t believe we NEVER finished it.

    …Wait, it’s not finished? And here I thought about reading the whole thing in one straight marathon one of these days.

    Congrats on the book. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  26. sora_blue

    Oh please do read it… and then finish it for us.


  27. maramala

    I wish. Really.

    I unfortunately have a Real Life(TM) now.

    But I will get to it one of these days.

    This is not an assumption; this is an eventuality.
